** It's also invoked to deal with LinearWarriorsQuadraticWizards. The characters are high enough level that a well-built and played wizard and cleric would be so powerful as to render the rest of the team completely irrelevant. And so it is that Vaarsuvius has the worst possible school selection and tactics while Durkon insists on acting like a heals dispenser who sometimes remembers to use buffs.

* ''Webcomic/MenageA3'''s plots are frequently driven by the fact that few of the characters are terribly smart, and even the fairly bright ones are prone to being driven by their hormones (this being very, very much a SexComedy). One notable repeated example is Gary's unwillingness to tell his colleague Tracy that he's not the sexual guru that she seems to think, and that he didn't intend to offer her boyfriend James oral sex, coupled with Tracy's muddle-headed attempts to manipulate the two men and James' willingness to believe whatever he's told (except that Tracy would actually like to give him oral sex herself). The stories involving the three of them are generally a mess of bad ideas and stupid misunderstandings.

** If the PC's stopped acting like... well, PC's for a few moments and just LISTEN to the NPC's, many of the series' problems could be avoided. Elan would never have been mistaken for his brother and arrested and [[spoiler:Vampire!Durkon]] would have been exposed much sooner for instance.

* ''Webcomic/{{Narbonic}}'': PlayedForLaughs. Since most members of the cast are {{Mad Scientist}}s, the vast majority of the plots could be averted if they contemplated the consequences of their actions for half a second. It's to the point that Mell, a violent girl of average intelligence, consistently ends up on top simply because of her ability to think in a straight line.

* There were...many, many problems with the now-defunct ''US Angel Corps''. The least graphic of these were all the leaps of logic that comprised the premise: the US government reinstates a failed program from World War II, then addresses precisely none of the issues that doomed that program. They don't give their Spec Ops agents more than basic training (if even that), appropriate load-outs, any backup, or even ''armour''. Then they act all surprised when things go south.

* In ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'', bad-tempered girl-with-issues Faye Whittaker takes the initiative and hooks up with her insecure boss Dora's popular brother Sven, who is famous among the entire cast as a playboy that engages in completely physical relationships with no monogamy involved. Throughout their somewhat antagonistic sexual relationship, Sven repeatedly tells Faye that it's just physical, and that he retains the right to have sex with other girls whenever he wants. Despite this, when he actually does ''exactly what he said he was going to do'', Faye is crushed as if he had cheated on her, Dora is chomping at the bit to kick his ass, and the rest of the cast likewise treats Sven with disdain. The only character that didn't juggle the Idiot Ball in this instance was Penelope, who outright lampshades that nobody should have been surprised that Sven slept with another girl.
